    Text color is in services.jar, if you want black use the stock Bumblebee or Harmonia 1x or use the oen out of my flashers, easiest way, otherwise you have to edit an xmp file in the jar (if I remember right).

    The statusbar color itself and many (not all) of the icons are in framework-res.apk.
    You can edit this in Winzip.

    The easiest way to edit any of it is use my flashers or use UOT Kitchen if you want something else. UOT Kitchen is pretty simple.

    Why?
    Sell your OV and buy a Metro phone. Won't cost much, you will get a newer phone and it's a lot easier.

    Why not use a flash-able recovery zip for the changes?

    I'm not exactly sure how to go about it. I tried zipping the theme and then adding an updater script, but it failed to flash.

    Code:
    ui_print("        Once         ");
    ui_print("        Your         *);
    ui_print("   Bumblebee Back    ");
    ui_print("                     ");
    mount("MTD", "system", "/system");
    delete("/system/app/Launcher2.apk);
    delete("/system/app/Mms.apk");
    delete('/system/framework/ramework-res.apk");
    package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
    ui_print("");
    ui_print("");
    ui_print("");
    ui_print("");
    ui_print("");
    unmount("/system");
    delete = delete what ever you tell it to
    mount = mount a partition
    package_extract_dir = extract files in a folder

    The updater-script you have is a good starting point as to what commands do what.

    Just make sure you have both your update-binary and updater-script (use the same one for your ROM), inside /META-INF/com/google/android/


    Edit: Just reuse the update-binary.

    Ahha. Thank you my good sir. My problem is the update binary... what is it and how do I make it. When I open it up in an editor its just all those silly symbols.

    You don't really need to worry about editing it, just reuse it.

    Edit: I maybe wrong about the UMS problem, but I am working on something, and I believe i messed up on the Kernel I give you.

    I'm rather lost with the kernel thing since I can't build from source. I think you're right about that kernel thing being wrong though.

    I was able to get the zip to flash, so I'm uploading it. I had everything correct, I was getting a status 6 error because there were some syntax errors in my updater-script. All debugged now

    Yes it supports sms. Your 2.3 rom should support sms though as well...

    Did you try to run the activate app? Also, did you have data and then lose it, or was it completely gone on the first boot?

    I assume this happened both times that you flashed the rom. How long did it take before you lost data? It might come back if you toggled airplane mode.

    I did get you pm. I don't think I can get the ics look though, but I can definitely get you the gingerbread look. Its just a matter of replacing png files, but ics is a totally different beast.

    Haha Well I don't really know how to answer that, but if you want to learn how android works and how to make your own customized roms, I suggest you start by opening the rom zips up with 7zip (a windows program) so you can replace things inside it, and try extracting apks with 7zip so you can understand the structure of how they work. Then slowly you'll find things you want to edit, and often you can find the answer by googling it (xda developers has a lot of [How to] threads). There are a lot of tools out there like apktool (google it) that decompile and recompile apps. I can't say how helpful google is in this. I say that you should work backwards: decompiling things and opening them are easier ways to learn how things work than starting with source code.

    Hope I helped, and I'll have your themed lockscreen done tomorrow, I'll post it for others as well.

    Here's a link to apktools, the directions on how to install it are here and how to use it as well. http://code.google.com/p/android-apktool/ as to how to use it here's a link. You will probably have problems setting it up, so I suggest googling any questions you have. 99% of the questions I had about apktool were answered before I asked them by smart people on various forums. Good luck.
